Virtual Concentration and Meditation
Expert author Joe Merchant, in the famous book ‘Cure’, has written deep study experiences on the realities of virtual reality and meditation. According to him, this kind of meditation enhances self-confidence. Merchant says that our brain has a fixed capacity for concentration. In such a case, if you have an experience where a large part of concentration is spent, then the advantage is that you move away from the other things. That is, whatever capacity you have in meditation, it becomes concentrated in one direction.
